Healing Ink, Highland Park

Saturday, May 27, 2023

10:00am – 4:00pm

Healing Ink covers the scars of those affected by mass violence.

“There are many forms of healing, each one working for different communities and people. We have found that for many, tattooing is an untapped and powerful resource. The ways in which people find relief in tattooing is varied and individualistic. Manifesting emotional trauma in physical pain, commemorating the day, creating an opportunity for peers to ask questions, beauty or wanting to cover a scar and erase a memory, all providing a sense of agency and independence. We cannot control what happened on that day. We can control how we respond.”

Healing Ink is currently accepting applications from those affected by the Highland Park shooting. More information can be found on their website and the application below.
